From the only region of central Italy without access to the Mediterranean come Tiger! Sh*t! Tiger! Tiger! a power-trio that has only been together slightly more than a year yet has toured themselves up and down the Boot and surrounding EU countries. With their eyes peeled and their ears alert to music scenes beyond the Atlantic, Tiger! Shit! Tiger! Tiger! take a lot their influences from 90s American indierock bands who in turn took their influences from classic angular UK punk bands . The outcome for this Italian band is a unique interpretation of splintered punk and bitter and dissonant tracks that never last longer that 2 minutes.
Two years after the release of Tiger! Sh*t! Tiger! Tiger!’s acclaimed debut "Be Yr Own Sh*t", the Italian noise-pop explorers are back with "Whispers". Recently featured as a band to watch in Spin Magazine, Italy's secret weapon bring forth a sound that's tempting and melodic, yet sharp and desperate. Every song is played with the greatest urgency: "Whispers EP" is catchy, but in a subtle way that keeps you engaged. However, it is the antithesis to a whisper, it is a noisy lo-fi sound with punk and new waves influences.
This EP shows that Tiger! Sh*t! Tiger! Tiger! aren't afraid to grow as a band, and we still can't wait for their follow-up to "Be Yr Own Sh*t".
The band has toured the U.S. and played shows with the legendary the Slits (at the Blueghost Publicity showcase @ CMJ 2008 - New York), Chris Leo (The Van Pelt) and Late of the Pier. They played four shows at CMJ 2009 in New York too.
Their new CD/EP - cassette tape "Whispers" will be out in July 2010.
In support of "Whispers", last March Tiger! Sh*t! Tiger! Tiger! performed three shows in Austin, TX
